Father Son starting their fishing charter off on the right foot

Nathan returns with his Father John.

Nathan booked a second trip after slamming the speckled trout on a previous trip. This time he brought his father, John. It was a cold morning, but everyone brought an extra layer to stay warm for the run into the marsh. By 10 am they put a three-man limit of redfish in the boat using live shrimp under a cork. Once the cooler was loaded with some very healthy redfish, we tried a few spots in the Biloxi Marsh for speckled trout. A few moves, later and only a few specks on ice, Nathan asked for bass. So, we made a short run to a deep hole in a bayou on the New Orleans side and put several basses in the boat before a school of reds moved in. It turned into every cast a redfish, with most around 15″. We then moved to another deep bayou closer to Lake Catherine in New Orleans and after catching one sheepshead, began catching more redfish. They ended the day with a box full of fish and great memories. Thank you, Nathan. Looking forward to the next one.

Capt. Drake
